Do you think you have an interest in weaving? This 2-day class is designed to help you discover the magic, fun, and endless possibilities of weaving. Students will be introduced to some of the basics of weaving, including basic weaving terminology, parts of the loom and how they work, and then progressing to winding a warp, dressing a loom and reading a draft. The instructor will guide students through this process and you will complete either a wool or bamboo scarf in plain weave or twill. Bring a lunch; a refrigerator and microwave are available for use.
Your fee will be refunded if the class is canceled or changed to a different date. Three registrations are required for a class to be held. Students will be notified before the start date if a class is canceled due to an insufficient number of students.
